LIP 07: Mandriva and X, third time’s a charm

Posted in Mandriva, Wireless, X at 3:37 am by serge

In a rare display of common sense, I realize that all three installation cds are needed, not just the first one. I am rewarded with a very nice X and KDE install. Kudos to the Mandriva team for a very pretty graphical installer.

We also come to find that Vim 7.0 comes installed out of the box. But this is the old school vim, terminal only. We then take a shot at installing the gui version and, after a little fumbling, get it working.

We then move on to the wireless card and find ourselves still fumbling around when the clock ran out. Will we get the wireless and sleep working before the fourth and final Mandriva episode? Tune in next week to find out.
